In her work Eglė Budvytytė (Kaunas 1981) is concerned with how our awareness of and sensitivity to the environment is constructed and conditioned. She uses various medias, such as radio broadcasts, videos and stages semi-scripted situations in an attempt to blur imaginary and real, to question the social conditionings and the common-sense realities. Eglė Budvytytė lives and works in Amsterdam. In 2008 she completed a Master at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. Among other places her work has been shown at Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo, CAC Vilnius, Performance and visual art biennial at Swiss Institute, NYC, Power Plant, Toronto and TENT, Rotterdam. From the end of this year she will be on residency at Palais de Tokyo/ le Pavillon, Paris. Besides the creening of Magicians, on Thursday the 19th of May we will screen Leap (5 min. 2009) a video that features how architecture can be used and abused, to jump, to stretch, to hide.

Also in Dolores Thursday 12t/05/2011 at 19 hrs. Jasper Coppes reading Jan Turnovsky The Poetics of a Wall Projection/ Die Poetik eines Mauervorsprungs.
Sometimes the discourse around an architectural project precedes or anticipates the actual experience of the physical building; in other cases text even replaces it. Jasper Coppes (Netherlands 1983) is interested in how the description of a place functions in exploring the boundaries of its existence – how it can initiate approximations or models of future experiences, or how it exhibits the operations that a place supposedly allows. Jasper Coppes graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam 2008 and is currently on residency at the Jan Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht. His wok has been shown in galleries and off-site spaces around the Netherlands and is next to be seen in the group exhibition Fluiten in het Donker, opening at de Appel Arts Centre in Amsterdam in May.
Jan Turnovsky (1941-1995) worked as a carpenter, graphic designer, tenor saxophonist, poet and architectural researcher at the Architectural Association and the Technical University in Vienna.
